Cara Delevingne and Matt Smith shoot with Alasdair McLellan for the new Burberry Collection.
There has been a lot of news coming out of the Burberry camp this week with Christopher Bailey leaving, but at least they gave us a holiday treat by having former Doctor Who star Matt Smith shoot with Cara Delevingne for their latest campaign.
This latest collection is for the current holiday season and is full of beautiful garments in the signature beige tartan pattern, but also a pop of red in many of the pieces that give the collection a hint of Christmas spirit.
Delevingne, who has worked with McLellan and Bailey many times over the years, was delighted to work on this campaign, especially with the news of Bailey leaving.
‘I am so proud to share this new shoot I did with Alasdair McLellan and Matt Smith. Thank you to the creative genius and my dear friend Christopher Bailey for involving me in this and all the incredible projects over the years. It has been and always will be a joy to work with you and the Burberry family.’
Smith, who is part of the immeasurably talented Doctor Who franchise as Doctor #11, was also grateful to be a part of something so special. It is his first project with the Burberry brand as well as his first foray into the fashion world.
‘Burberry has always been a brand that I have admired. From the football stands to the macs on the runway. The chance to work with Christopher, who with his design and vision, has contributed so much to a brilliant British brand and indeed left a footprint not only on fashion but British culture itself, is a huge privilege. Working with both Alasdair McLellan and Cara Delevingne, two fashion and creative heavyweights, was also very appealing, and made partnering for this campaign an easy choice for me.’
The collection, as pictured above and below, is said to be “a celebration of character and British Charm” which is full of eclectic, bright colors, patterns, textures, and undeniable personality.
The pieces of this holiday collection are sure to be classics for seasons to come. A collective of elegant and playful pieces with a penchant for flair, it represents pure British, Burberry, charm.
